Today, Gua Sha (pronounced “gwa shaa”) is one of the most popular natural face sculpting techniques in Asia and it's becoming a real rockstar in the beauty industry worldwide. 

Gua Sha is an ancient healing technique, originating from China but also used in Japan and Korea. It is an essential part of traditional Chinese medicine, used as folk medicine in many Chinese homes. It ́s origin dates back thousands of years and involves scraping the skin to eliminate toxins, waste products, tension and pain.

“Gua” means ”to scrape” and “Sha” means ”red spots / redness”. It is a highly effective treatment that provides immediate benefits. The tools used to scrape with, are special Gua Sha tools. In our facials, we have chosen to combine Gua Sha with crystal healing. Therefore, our Gua Sha tools are carved from genuine crystals collected all over the world. Each crystal is unique and our beauty tools will vary accordingly.
